Axxess® Introduces New Steering Wheel Control and Data Interface Product Line

Jan 7, 2019

CES 2019 New Product Rollout

 

Holly Hill, FL –  January, 2019 – Axxess® by Metra Electronics®  announces the Total Control Interface Series™, a new product line for radio replacement integration debuting at CES. Axxess has engineered a new data interface that combines all of the features of the patented ASWC-1 with additional patent-pending features into one robust solution for new radio installations. When replacing a radio, the AXTC-1 utilizes patented Auto-Detect technology1 that automatically detects the vehicle type, radio connection and preset controls, while allowing the ability to dual assign steering wheel controls. It provides NAV outputs, accessory power and a 12-volt illumination output, in addition to retaining R.A.P., balance and fade.

The Total Control Series is a universal solution designed to work with all major radio brands and both amplified and non-amplified audio systems. In addition to Auto-Detect, it can be manually programmed for most vehicles and will retain most settings even after battery disconnection or interface removal. The product line also includes eight vehicle-specific harnesses for easier installation in a wide range of vehicle applications.
